Newly acquired KCCA FC defender Geoffrey Wasswa has promised to make things happen at Lugogo but also acknowledged that he does not see it coming that easy.
Upon signing a two-year contract with KCCA, Wasswa said: “I am happy to join a club as big as KCCA.”
“It is a dream for so many players, and I have achieved it. I am grateful. It is now my turn to put a smile on the faces of the fans, and the stakeholders of this great club.”
“As a player, my next task is to help the team register positive results, to begin with, the league and the Uganda Cup,” he said.
“I know it is not going to be so easy, but I also came here looking for a positive challenge, and I am ready to take it on. I have been working hard, so I will work even harder here,”
“There are so many good players here, and I am not scared of competing with them for a place in the team. I instead hope to work with each one of them. KCCA for me is a family,” Wasswa added.
Wasswa is already feeling at home. Before arriving at Lugogo, he already had friends there. He mentioned Mugume Ashraf (Fadiga), who he studied with at Kitende, Peter Magambo, John Revita and Julius Poloto among other players.
Wasswa, who joined KCCA from SC Villa, will stay at KCCA for until at least 2023.
He had previously played for Vipers SC, where he spent his formative years until he made his senior debut for the Venoms against BUL FC at Nakivubo Stadium in 2016.
Also a graduate of the FUFA Juniors League, Wasswa has formerly represented Uganda with the national U20 and U23 sides.
He has won the Uganda Cup (2017) and Uganda Premier League (2018 and 2020) with Vipers.
Wasswa is the sixth signing for KCCA FC during this transfer window, having arrived after Brian Majwega, Brian Kayanja, Emmanuel Wasswa, Yasser Mugerwa, Usama Arafat.
